ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART  
by
3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticit... [more]

Virtual Bodies and Real Hands  
by
Ed Atkins at Serpentine Sackler Gallery 7/23/14 Posted 7/23/14

Human sounds of drinking, whispering, laughing, and singing surround the old British Army magazine building of the Sackler Gallery. They combine between the three parts of the video work Ribbons (2014), which is the central piece of Ed Atkins’ solo show. The voices are as memorizing and disturbing as the hyper-real 3D animated films they accompany. The sound goes out of sync and back again; the three parts of Ribbons are similar and different at the same time. In all three, Dave, the avat... [more]

Posted 7/20/14

I only need one song to explain how I feel about country music: George Strait’s So Much Like My Dad. A modest hit in 1992, the tune’s not nearly as recognizable as Strait’s other classics. You’ll likely run into All My Exes Live in Texas, but probably not So Much Like My Dad. A few keys of the piano walk you into the song’s weather: the first few drops of an icy rain, a first snowfall. A brush hits the drumhead and somehow it’s cold. It hits a few more times a... [more]

Artist HILLARY MILES Gifts Chicago Quirky, Confident and Adventurous Women  
by
7/19/14 Posted 7/19/14

Art Institute of Chicago graduate and self-declared sci-fi and fantasy fan, Hillary Miles utilizes her broadly-minded, mythical creativity to forge a new kind of heroine. Her piece “Slither” features a young woman serenely coddling a live snake; another painting, “Samantha” portrays a girl calmly acquiescing to the enveloping embrace of a large, cantaloupe-colored monster. A collector favorite, the “Space Girl” series, depicts women astronauts in bold eye... [more]

Follow-Up Conversation with Artist HILLARY MILES  
by
7/19/14 Posted 7/19/14

-You mentioned an interest in children's books and sci-fi stories. What particular fantasy characters and tales have inspired your work? There’s a beautiful economy of structure and wealth of symbolism in children’s stories and old myths that I find completely appealing. And while I love the range of possibility that science fiction and fantasy stories have to offer, I am especially compelled by the way their boundarylessness is always tethered by a camouflaged truth—I tr...

My Favorite Artworks at Secession Building, Vienna  
by
7/13/14 Posted 7/17/14

The Secession Building in Vienna is so iconic, that though it doesn't have permanent collections, except for Beethoven Frieze by Gustav Klimt, I feel that I am compelled to include it in the series of My Favorite Museum Collections. Secession Building is an exhibition hall built in 1897 by Joseph Maria Olbrich as an architectural manifesto for the Vienna Secession and the Beethoven Frieze is a painting by Gustav Klimt created in 1902 for the 14th Vienna Secessionist exhibition and is now on display in t...

Last weekend, I visited Legion of Honor Museum, San Francisco, to see a special exhibition - Intimate Impressionism from the National Gallery of Art from Washington D.C.

The exhibition was organized and displayed by artists, a choice group including many big names and a few less fa... [more]

Immo Jalass commented by E Hoeveler

7/9/14 Posted 7/9/14

Elizabeth Hoeveler (ASC) commenting Immo Jalass's artworks How many dimensions can we see? Three, on a 'normal day. On a 'normal' day, however, I might be fooled into thinking I'm somewhere else - or many other places at the same time, while looking at Immo Jalass's digital offerings. I can cross dimensions and have a foot in several. I can extend the one dimension I'm in and reshape it to my wish. I can focus on a fruit color and have that color move back or forward out of the fruit bowl. Immo Jala... [more]

Ceramics Now Magazine Has Featured The Lonely Girls!

7/9/14 Posted 7/17/14

Wow! I just got word today that my Lonely Girls have been included in Ceramics Now! Thanks to the editor/publisher Vasi Hirdo, they will now reside prominently on the home page of the site for a time. I am glad this project is getting some attention. Alzheimer's disease is horrendous and especially when the majority of those afflicted with it are our elderly. My mother just turned 90 this past May and her day to day experience with it continues to be more difficult as time goes on. Bas... [more]

Intimate Strangers: In Conversation with Matthew Morrocco  
by
7/7/14 Posted 7/7/14

Berlin, Jul. 2014: Matthew Morrocco’s “Berlin Series” depicts no-strings-attached encounters tied to the fabric of our most intimate human emotions. This tender photographic self-portrait series evokes the pleasure and pathos that can be embedded in online hook-ups. As a young New York artist studying in Berlin, Morrocco met older men and photographed them either alone or interacting with his nude body. He respectfully represents these men’s aged bodies and evident desires. P... [more]
